Mike and I both assumed you were using XSL Transformation language

The language built into IE5 by default has only historical connection
to XSLT (although it is called "XSL" in microsoft documentation)

In particular IE5/MSXML2's "XSL"  has no arithmetic functions (you have
to escape to javascript to do anything).

Best is to update your IE5 with the MSXML3  update available from
Microsoft Then your XSL stylesheets will work as expected.
